Through the Storm is an album by Aretha Franklin, released on Arista Records in the spring of 1989.

Despite the hit title track - a duet with superstar Elton John - the album was a sales disappointment, peaking at #55. It sold about 225,000 copies in the United States and was taken out of print shortly afterwards. The follow-up single, "It Isn't, It Wasn't, It Ain't Never Gonna Be," a duet with Whitney Houston, failed to make the pop Top 40. Other guest artists were James Brown, The Four Tops and Kenny G.
